Aaron Ramsey has returned to full Arsenal training and could even feature in Saturday’s clash agains Liverpool at Anfield.
The Wales international has been out of action since picking up a calf problem in the defeat to Watford at the end of January.
However, Ramsey has confirmed he is fit again and hoping to return to first-team action shortly.
“I’m back training now, so I hope to be available for selection very soon,” Ramsey said via the Daily Star.
Wales boss Chris Coleman is also hoping Ramsey can get some first-team football under his belt ahead of a World Cup qualifier against Republic of Ireland next month.
“Rambo says he feels good,” Coleman said. “He need to gets some minutes for Arsenal’s first team and fingers crossed he does that.”

Ramsey’s return is well-timed with Arsenal having been hit by injuries in midfield with Santi Cazorla out for the season and Mohamed Elneny having been pictured wearing a protective boot after picking up an injury against Sutton United in the FA Cup.
Arsenal travel to Anfield to face a Liverpool side struggling for form in 2017 and having seen their top four hopes take a huge hit with a 3-1 defeat to Leicester City on Monday night.
The result leaves the Reds in fifth, a point behind Arsenal having played a game more and having managed just one Premier League victory in 2017 so far.
The Reds are also struggling with injuries with Jordan Henderson a major doubt for the clash while Dejan Lovren and Daniel Sturridge also remain sidelined.
